Your Shero’s Journey

Would you like a little taste of transformation life coaching?  When I start working with a new coaching client, I love to kick off with Your Shero’s Journey based on the 12 Stages of the Hero’s Journey as mapped out by Joseph Campbell.

Because it’s a fabulous way for you to…

  • See yourself as a SHERO on your own story
  • Identify which Shero’s Journey you are on right now
  • See how far you have come
  • See which steps to take next

Your Shero’s Journey

Mapping out you Shero’s Journey together gives me a chance to get to know your hopes, dreams, desires, trials and tribulations, to see where I may be of help in your journey of transformation.

Your Shero’s Journey is about recognizing your own greatness in a fun, light way.

What is Your Shero’s Journey? 

At the centre of every movie or story is a shero or hero.

Usually, this hero isn’t a superhero endowed with superhuman powers, but an ordinary woman or man who has risen to the occasion or faced their demons when the going got tough.

Even superheroes start out as a regular guy or girl. Think about the nerdy Clark Kent who becomes Superman, or his cousin, Kara Kent, who becomes Supergirl.

Even the greatest Supershero of all time, Wonder Woman, adopted the secret identity of nurse, Diana Prince in DC Comic books.

Not only do most stories follow the tale of a hero’s journey but that journey tends to follow a similar

path.  This same journey narrative has been used over and over and over again for as long as we have been telling stories.

Think of the timid Frodo Baggins who saves the world in The Lord of The Rings.

Or Santiago, the Andalusian shepherd boy with big dreams of finding gold as told in The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho.

These stories prove that the greatest act of courage is taking the journey into yourself.

The Hero’s Journey – Joseph Campbell

Hero's Journey _ Joseph Campbell _ The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Joseph Campbell is famous for identifying the 12 Stages of the Hero’s Journey in the history of storytelling and mythology and exploring the psychology behind why we are so intrigued by these stories.

The 12 Stages of the Hero’s Journey are used in movies and literature because the human mind finds a story that follows this process irresistible.

  • We simply can’t turn away from our hero.
  • We want to know what happens to them.
  • We want to see them succeed.

Stories and myths help point to something beyond what humans can understand with their rational thoughts.

They point to the source of the meaning of life.

So, whether the hero embarks on an intentional quest or is propelled into an unintentional journey, it becomes a serendipitous adventure.

The stories might be about the slaying of dragons or overcoming overwhelming odds, yet all hero myths are actually about the transformation of the consciousness of the hero.

The death of the old self and the birth of the new.

The moral objective of every tale is pushing beyond the perceived limits and dedicating themselves to a greater cause.

When an ordinary person does extraordinary things, it gives us hope.

It tells us that maybe, just maybe we can do it too.

How does the Hero’s Journey Relate to Me?

How does the Hero's Journey Relate to Me

The truth is, each one of us is the Hero (or Shero) in our own life’s journey.

These stories draw us in because we can relate to them.

The books we read or movies we watch bear witness to the dream we hold in our hearts.

We relate to the 12 steps of the Hero’s Journey because we see our journey, our destiny.

Each of us sees a little part of ourselves in every unsuspecting (s)hero.  We relate to:

  • Their feelings of dissatisfaction.  
  • The dream for a better life.
  • The fears we face stepping into the unknown.
  • The frustrations of the struggles.
  • The glory of victory.
